Radiant Material: A Dialogue in Vietnamese Lacquer Painting

We were engaged to conceptualise and design an essay booklet on Vietnamese lacquer painting to complement 'Radiant Material', an exhibition held in National Gallery Singapore.

Design Vietnamese lacquer painting are famed for its intricate material layering techniques. We express this quality with the booklet cover in layers. The content pages are thoughtfully typeset on a consistent grid system, with periodical fold-outs of expansive visual to create an engaging reading rhythm.
